5513 Question

For all the Sub experts, could I get your opinion on this 5513 that I saw in a shop today? Seems like the face is not period correct and I'm more of a GMT guy so my knowledge is limited but I really like the watch....any assistance is appreciated.

way too small image to comment beyound the dial insert and hands appear to be service units and the case has been polished a couple of times. 1967 5513 should have a meters first matte dial. Not without charm though

SERVICE DIAL and Bezel, which means probably 'service' a lot more else. Hard Pass for me.

Crown looks very funky, all service parts. Not worth half the asking price

Hardly anything from 1967 left on that watch.

Swiss only dial was the immediate give away, pass.
